U by Kotex® amplified your voice about the causes closest to your heart. We have split our $50k SheCan Fund between 3 amazing organisations who are working towards these causes. See below to learn more about these great organisations

The Foodbank Project provides an easy way for Kiwis to donate everyday essential food and grocery items online to families in need through The Salvation Army.

Support the Foodbank Project to end period poverty in NZ!
